How to Dress for Success Paper Illusions

By Edith Head with Joe Hyams

The Art of Isabelle de Borchgrave

Would you like to look younger, prettier, slimmer? Edith Head (1897–1981) dressed stars from Grace Kelly and Elizabeth Taylor to Sophia Loren and Audrey Hepburn, and this reprint of Head’s classic 1967 tome serves as a timeless reference to looking your best. 192 pages, 5⅛×7".

By Barbara and Rene Stoeltie Introduction by Hubert de Givenchy Belgian artist, designer, and interior decorator Isabelle de Borchgrave has created exquisite paper dresses evoking high fashions from the courts of the Medici in the Renaissance to the legendary Fortuny silks of the early 20th century. Their historical authenticity, combined with their startling realism, caused an overnight sensation when they were first shown in France in 1998 as “papiers à la mode.” Over 240 color illustrations, 208 pages, 12¾×9⅝".

Vivienne Westwood Kimonos By Sophie Milenovich

By Claire Wilcox Introduction by Vivienne Westwood

The kimono is one of the most emblematic symbols of Japan. It is rich in symbolism and social messages. It is not only a garment: It gathers a wealth of codes and traditions. It is the essence of Japanese culture itself. With original photographs and drawings, Kimonos beautifully illustrates the various facets of the garment, historically and in modern times. 256 pages, 9¼×6½".

The London Daily Express called this first full study of Vivienne Westwood’s work “a delight for any followers of fashion.” More than 200 color illustrations present Westwood’s dynamic fashions; outfits worn by the Sex Pistols contrast with more recent creations for Sarah Jessica Parker and Cameron Diaz, showing why Westwood is one of the most talked-about designers in the world. 224 pages, 9¾×11⅜", paperback.

Kel Gilligan’s Daredevil Stunt Show By Michael Buckley Illustrated by Dan Santat

New!

Kids will laugh at their fears and celebrate the bravery it takes to try new things. As Kel attempts “stunts” with Evel Knievel–like flair, the story becomes a performance with readers as part of the audience, encouraging Kel to get dressed all by himself, eat new foods like broccoli (eww!), and more. Bold and silly, this will prompt readers to do “stunts” on their own. Color illustrations, 40 pages, 9×11".
